Thanks for the tip!

I had to think a bit on some of today's ones. Made 4 guesses and got 3 of them wrong.

How many extra points do you get for being fast?

You basically lose 1 point (out of a max of 1000) for every second you spend on the quiz, and 100 points for every incorrect answer. So it's possible to get 10/10 but score 0 if you're too slow!

Snowy has done pretty much that a few times after getting called in to meetings after starting the quiz, and ending up with a time of 5,000+ seconds :lol:

So, equally, it's possible that you might get 1 more question wrong than someone else, but because they took over 100 seconds longer on the quiz you place above them.

If # correct answers and time taken are equal, then whoever completed the quiz first places higher of the two.

It's always all of these. :)


Except the one time it isn't.

Surprised I pulled an 8 today....

Ah okay, makes sense now. Thanks Sly.

I'll try and be a bit quicker next time and just randomly guess instead of racking my brains for ages.

most of the catagorys are a bit weird, or mega american based.

Yeah, I try not to bring it around in the rotation too often, but once a month it mixes it up a bit.

I guessed about half of today's, amazed I got all but one right.

I knew hummus was made of chickpeas but something made me go back and change my answer to yoghurt. :x

So I got 8 instead of 9. But I knew the answer was chickpeas, I just second-guessed myself for some bizarre reason.

That Coleridge question can fuck right off. I knew the answer but the quiz had misspelled it so I guessed at another.... now I read that was the answer because reasons. Just no! That's not how quizzes work. Slags.

I got loads of others wrong anyway but that was due to my failing intellegence.

This. For exactly the same reason. This is a quiz, not a "can you guess the answer to my piss-weak joke"! Slags.

Gah, my work email opened at the same time as I clicked to start the quiz, and I was a reply down before I realised that my time was ticking up. Never mind, was about films where I suck anyway :D
